. >> brit, critics suggest that for all the obama administration's talk these days about pivoting from the middle east to a new focus on asia, that what china sees is a president who desperately wants to stay out of all foreign entanglements, and therefore there is some weakness there, a vacuum that they want to fill. >> that's the thing you worry about with a range of these administration moves that this president, unlike many of his predecessors, does not see the united states as necessarily the great bulwark in the world order, and that he prefers a more passive role, leading from behind, if you will, and that that provides the temptations for regimes like the chinese, the iranians and others, that they now have more freedom of movement because the president of the united states is indisposed to take tough measures. and that, i think is kind of where we are. and there is a unity among these differing issues in differing places in the world in that they test the resolve of the obama administration which these countries and their leaders suspect is not strong. >> speaking of testing t

. and you are able to afford rent. but you know, president obama always talks about wanting to grow the economy from the middle class out, not from the top down. when you look at this jobs report, are there other weaknesses that you see? >> i just think that in general, the big weakness here is we still don't have enough jobs. 200,000's a great number but realistically, at this point in this recovery, we need to start worrying about is that going to be a high water mark as opposed to a step up to like 300,000, 400,000 a month which is what would really again, create the kind of pressure upward that we're just getting everybody a raise, basically. >> jim tankersley, thank you so much. we appreciate it. you look very sharp. i appreciate the beard as well. >> you should try it. >>> coming up on "the lead," he was in the oval office while nelson mandela sat in a prison cell. coming up next, we have former president jimmy carter who will share his memories of the south african leader with you and me. >>> plus, you might think partisan politics couldn't taint the legacy of an internationa
years obama did talk about a grand bargain. the republicans tried to meet him halfway. i think the shutdown changed everything. it was such a debacle for the republican party. you know, they had embraced this sort of sabotage approach to nongovernance. i think the assumption was they weren't going to do that again in january. but what they're going to do, what they're going to agree to do, barely there. this mini thing that will get us a few extra months. it's sad this is sort of the state of, quote, budget negotiations. but as obama and democrats have found, when you're negotiating with people who aren't particularly persuadable on anything, you're lucky if you can use sort of a up and down-aid like that. >> kiki, just on the politics of that, i think eric makes a great point. if i'm john boehner and i'm anybody, frankly in the leadership in the republican party, part of my concern is, we've got to have something that i know we are not going to shut the government down over. >> that's right. >> because they know they just cannot handle that another time. those numbers are alre
now and hear from brianna keilar. this was a personal moment for barack obama who talked about the influence of nelson mandela when he was a young man. >> reporter: that's right, john. it was just huge. president obama was 19 years old when he first got involved with the anti-apartheid movement. the first time he gave what being call a political speech was back in 1981. he was a sophomore at occidental college when he spoke out against apartheid. for president obama, nelson mandela was a personal hero and personal idol who struggled his earliest ambitions. >> i am one of the first who grew inspiration from nelson mandela's life. my first political action, the first thing i ever did that involved an issue of policy or politics was a protest against apartheid. >> reporter: they met in person only briefly in 2005 before obama became president. the two leaders, each standing in history as the first black president of his nation, spoke occasionally by phone. president obama penned the forward for mandela's 2010 memoir "conversations with myself." he wrote his example helped awakened
. the reboot of obama care continues as the president talks about the economic benefits of this law in washington, d.c. yesterday he defended the affordable care act and suggested if the republicans have better ideas they should bring them to the table. >> the bottom line is this law is working and will work into the future. we are just getting started with the exchanges. just getting started with the market places. we are not going to walk away from it. if i have to fight another three years to make sure the law works, that's what i'll do. i will work with anybody to implement and improve this law effectively. you got good ideas, bring them to me. let's go. but we are not repealing it as long as i'm president. i want everybody to know that. >> if what the president just said is true, then that's a marked change from the first time it went through. republicans had scores of amendments that harry reid kill and never let them discuss it on the floor and never got a vote on the floor. if the president now wants to actually work with republicans as well as democrats on the health care b

, and republicans do not. that is the fundamental, you know, framework for what we're talking about. and i think that democrats have an advantage. republicans want them to think it's a disadvantage. that obama care, the website, wasn't working and all the glitches. but come next year when people are going to the doctor, it's going to be a plus for democrats. >> well, it does feel like professor dyson, that's exactly where the president was going. i want to play more sound from today, because he was pretty much sending that exact same message. let's lesson. >> you can't just say that the system was working with 41 million people without health insurance. you can't just say that the system is working when you've got a whole bunch of folks who thought they had decent insurance, and then when they got sick, it turned out it wasn't there for them. go back, take a look at what's actually going on. because it can make a difference in your lives, and lives of your families. >> so, you know, professor dyson, one of the biggest criticisms of the president and democrats and the way they did health care ref
case by case basis, let's talk about the obama care, it is an unholy mess and you worked at the white house. is there anything that can be done to save obama care? don't answer now. your grimace has said it all. this is the quicksilver cash back card from capital one. it's not the "limit the cash i earn every month" card. it's not the "i only earn decent rewards at the gas station" card. it's the no-games, no-signing up, everyday-rewarding, kung-fu-fighting, silver-lightning-in-a-bottle, bringing-home-the-bacon cash back card. this is the quicksilver card from capital one. unlimited 1.5% cash back on every purchase, everywhere, every single day. so ask yourself, what's in your wallet? where their electricity comes from. they flip the switch-- and the light comes on. it's our job to make sure that it does. using natural gas this power plant can produce enough energy for about 600,000 homes. generating electricity that's cleaner and reliable, with fewer emissions-- it matters. ♪ i dbefore i dosearch any projects on my home. i love my contractor, and i am so thankful to angie's list fo
care act, obama care right now and people are talking about it all over the country and it's a great opportunity for republicans. for to us have a huge year like we did in 1994 we'll have to have the sort of alternatives that bill is talking about. do you hear that, whether it's republican governor's association or in washington now, there is that understanding. i would be stunned if you didn't see a variety of alternatives. >> david gregory for those running for re-election and all the negative messages that are in this narrative right now in terms of obama care how fair are they and how hard of a slog will it be for the white house to try to turn this around? >> i think it will be difficult. ultimately they have to prove successful with the website. they have to have more positive stories that flood the marketplace and the media. look at story after story, morning after morning we're having this conversation of what the difficulties are, what the andy poling is, what we simply are confused by. they are going the need so much success even that's going to lag before they get to a pla

than the democrats. one of the things that president obama and the democrats have done is talking about the issues that matter to them. i think that's something we need to do. you don't think a lot about the solutions. the president talked a lot about it. identifying solutions and talking about them. it's pretty important for the party if we are going to try to address one of the top concerns of the generation. >> i will get you out of here with this one. one of the things i found interesting is despite the president's approval rating, harry reid and john boehner have larger disapproval ratings. harry reid at 59% and john boehner at 75%. the president 54. senator, to you and mr. grayson after that. is it fair to say that this age group is very much dis disenfranchised with the market? >> i think so absolutely. the numbers reflect general dissatisfaction with the way government is working right now or at least in the eyes of this generation. not working and looking for alternatives. it's not to say that the people who are currently in office can't be that alternative, but they have to sp
the website is going really well. i know the new york times and "washington post" talked about that a lot. if you go to kentucky, what you hear is that mitch mcconnell is still loud and proud saying we should repeal obama care. and the democratic candidate there running and her name is allison grimes. so far even though kentucky has a good website, she is still very weary of this law. her view is still obama care not going to help you win in kentucky. on the other hand in florida, you have charlie crist, now a democrat, running for governor there. he made one of his big issues the medicate expansion which is popular. florida has not allowed the medicaid expansion. and he thinks it's a winning issue with the democrats in florida. >> the website is working better but still underlying issues only just beginning to make head way like identity verification and enkolment data which is leaving some insurers and states like connecticut really uncomfortable and now looking for ways around the federal system, ways to enroll customers directly. this is how the new york times put it. some insurers ha
-- verifyble. when this bill was being talked about again, back in 2009, shortly after mr. obama became our 44th president, it was estimated that there was something like 47 million people in this country, mr. speaker, who through no fault of their own except couldn't afford it didn't have health insurance. well, when you really go through those numbers and i have a book with me that i'm going to reference and i want to give proper attribution, the name of the book is "the top 10 myths of american health care: a citizen's guide." maybe it could be a patient's guide. and this is written by sali pipes -- sally pipes. and she talks about in this book, she talks about that 47 million. something like 15 million of hose 47 million make more than $50,000 a year. indeed, some make more than $75,000 a year, mr. speaker. and they've just decided that they don't want health insurance, that they will pay as they go. and there's nothing wrong with that. i don't advise it. i think everybody should at least have catastrophic coverage. but be that as it may, this is america. we have to insist on enjoying our
, republicans want to talk about obama care, they want to talk about other issues. they think they can beat up on obama and the democrats and don't want to get bogged down by shutdowns and debt limit fights. there's no reason to think stocks are too high because washington's going to kill everything. >> and maybe it was set so low because it was on the floor. >> you can't go much lower than they are. they can clear the bar for expectations which is no shut down. and maybe get the approval ratings in the 10% range, double digits at some point. >> one of the things we've been watching is what the fed's going to do next. how much do you think the fed has been responsible for this. and if the tapering begins, is that really something that takes the steam out of the market? not if it's just based on valuations like you've been talking. >> i have not been of the view that fed-driven liquidity is the sole support under the market. we touched on it a few minutes ago, there are many traditional fundamental supports, not least being simple gdp growth. and the base from which we came classic epic market
this is a distraction from the real issue, which is the failure of obama care. the president would rather be talking about moral issues than the flawed rollout of his health care website. >> republicans must know or feel this issue is not good for them? >> i think it's more subtle. the president is trying to take the health care law and put it in the larger argument for what he wants to get done. it's a legacy item, a priority. the republicans are content to criticize the president on more americans being on food stamps. the question is what do you do about it? that's where the gap is fundamentally in washington today. >> i was trying to get the hash tag do better going. i would argue republicans have a big interest in this. cultivating business and job production here is much an agenda item on their platform as it is for democrats. >> it is. there's an interesting question. what is the republican agenda for poverty and inequality. this republican will cite people like teddy roosevelt. especially when it comes from the economy, from a different progressive era, 100 years ago. what's interesting is w
. that's always a losing strategy. >> john cornyn, he was trying the benghazi controversy to obama care and talking about how the white house has taking lying to a whole new level. this comes on the heels of him tweeting after the interim deal with iran was announced. amazing that the white house -- what the white house will do to distract attention from obama care. >> man, i mean, that was -- >> he's known to be critical but -- >> here's the thing. john cornyn is essentially a reasonable guy. he runs the senatorial committee. the tea party has criticized him intensely. this statement is outrageous for two reasons. lying to a whole new level? it's not that he's admitting that the president lies and people in washington lie. that's not a news flash. to show no historical memory, elevate for partisan purposes the obama administration of the worst lying in presidential history is ignorant, it's offensive talking down to the american people. second thing is this, for republicans right now, if they're trying to win a republican primary, they're rewarded for being responsible. you throw red m

snowy white house. president obama spoke yesterday where he talked about essentially the fact that he doesn't believe this is a done deal. he said, look, the chances of this deal with iran actually being ultimately successful are about 50/50. he also underscored the point that, look, this is a test. according to this administration, it's a six-month deal aimed at trying to see how serious iran really is about scaling back its nuclear programs. the president highlighting the fact that inspectors are in iran and the significance of that. again, essentially saying this is not a done deal, but it's something that -- it's a first step that he believes needs to be taken. important to point out he was speaking to a largely israeli audience, an audience that is skeptical of this deal that feels as though it doesn't go far enough. here's a little bit more of what president obama had to say. take a listen. >> if at the end of six months it turns out we can't make a deal, we're no worse off, and in fact we have greater leverage with the international community to continue to apply sanctions and
's make them functional. >> what you were talking about is repealing obama care. >> i don't know. obama -- there's no mandate in corporations now. >> i would call it limiting the damage, start moving toward a free market-based solution. >> none of it is going to work. if young people get to opt out. i'm saying, the only way actuarily it -- >> they're going to pay the penalty which won't be collected. and we've seen memos, they have no method of collecting this thing. and when you can buy insurance regardless of pre-existing conditions, why buy it ahead of time? and so that -- those are the incentives -- >> your 27-year-old example, he won't buy health care. >> it's $100 penalty or something like that right now? >> but it's going to be 2.5% of their income in two or three years. this isn't about choice, this isn't about freedom. this is about coercion. i think americans are going to take a look at this and they're going to see it's a disaster. they are going to demand change. and i think the responsible thing for republicans to do is do everything we can to limit the damage, try to prese

. and the president very interestingly at one point, brooke, talked about the term obama care. people in washington have been saying the president hasn't been using the word obama care as much lately. what's the deal with that? the president used it during this address to younger folk s here at the white house. here's what the president had to say. >> i know people call this law obama care. and that's okay. because i do care. and i do. i care about you. i care about families. i care about americans. but no matter how much i care, the truth is that for your friends and your family, the most important source of information is not going to be me. it's going to be you. they are going to trust you. >> so a little bit of the president picking himself up, dusting himself off from that disast rr rollout of healthcare.gov. no briefing here at the white house today, but on a conference call with reporters, officials with the administration, they were talking about how they also believe that enrollment is picking up, brooke. that is really the best news that this white house can be hoping for right now, for a

: lessons on life, love and courage." rick, thanks very much for joining us. talk about this relationship between president mandela and president obama. >> you know, wolf, i thought the president was very eloquent yesterday, talking about what president mandela meant to him. in many ways i think mandela was partly responsible for barack obama's own political awakening. one of the great legacies of mandela particularly in america is that it was an awakening for so many people that people were looking at south africa, this land that with terrible prejudice, terrible authoritarian government and we were looking at it as almost a proxy for what had happened in america during the civil rights movement and i think it awakened and it was a revelation for many, many americans. >> i'm sure president obama and i'm sure you'll agree was deeply disappointed when he was in south africa earlier this year, with his family, he was not able to go and meet president mandela, because he was so gravely ill. i'm sure he would have loved to have done that, but he obviously couldn't. he'll head to south africa
in the obama presidency hearing him say that. also in the context of what we're talking about in terms of what makes him a great leader. your comments on the president? >> of course, i didn't like hearing it. i guess some of his enemies liked hearing it. kind of a profound recognition of limitations from a man who spoke of wanting to lead a transformational presidency. last night in spelling it out, i said can't we compromise and get some things done. he said, great changes only come when one party calls the shots, whether it was roosevelt in the early '30s or lbj after canada's assassinati assassination, early part of ronald reagan. that's sad to me because i don't think we'll get one party for a long time. i see us split down the middle for a long time. he's basically saying we can't do anything big until that's the case. that bothered me. there was a personal moment. howard fineman noticed it more than i did when he seemed to be talking in a rare way from a man who is somewhat distant about the personal problem he's had of being president. he's had to be scrutinized. he does not like being
. but getting back to president obama, it's almost a full year, jon, into his re-election and you've been talking about how difficult his presidency has been, specifically over the past year. if you compare it to recent presidents before him, their approval rating at this very same time, president clinton and reagan both doing far better than president obama at this time. george w. bush was slightly lower at 37%. but this is the same president who it seemed could do no wrong when he was re-elected. ari often reminds me that in politics things can move very slow and they can also move very fast. >> only ari knows that? oh. >> and former white house adviser spoke to this on this week last week wanting it to move quickly. let's take a listen. >> people trust this president. i think there's been numbers all over the place. i'm confident in a few months from now those trust numbers are going to come up. i think his approval number will come up. >> that's obviously what every democrat wants. jon, it seems like this is a year the administration is wanting to put behind them very quickly. >> yeah
it and ambushing it. >> we were talking in an earlier segment about how you only get 1 chance to make a first impression which is one of the problems, frankly, facing obama care. in today's "wall street journal" editorial is stekeptical of thi report. sunday's eight-page report was intended to meet mr. obama's deadline for fixing the site after its october 1 debut was a clam at the. but the more important goal was political, namely to prevent -- how much of this is politics? what do you think about what the "wall street journal" wrote? >> i disagree with the assessment. what is important is that we ensure that people can enroll in the affordable care act. what is important is that health care inflation went up at its lowest rate in 50 years. and what is important is that a woman with breast cancer no longer has to be told by her insurance company that she's lost her insurance because of her breast cancer. so those are also important metrics. making sure that a woman with breast cancer isn't kicked off her insurance because the insurance company can't afford her, that's another metric. and ben

're going to be talking about. if he doesn't, this could be one of the issues we think about when we think about president obama. >> the white house yesterday called a report about obama's meetings with sebelius misleading andist based on a "false premise." >> texas, oklahoma, arkansas, if you haven't heard yet, it is freezing maybe. that will stay with us. jim, a man who doesn't stand still. but jim has afib, atrial fibrillation -- an irregular heartbeat, not caused by a heart valve problem. that puts jim at a greater risk of stroke. for years, jim's medicine tied him to a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but now, with once-a-day xarelto®, jim's on the move. jim's doctor recommended xarelto®. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce afib-related stroke risk. but xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem. that doesn't require routine blood monitoring. so jim's not tied to that monitoring routine.

a couple of things to talk about. i want to ask you about the big front page politico piece. the paper tiger. glenn thrush's piece. >> glenn has been looking at the weakness of the obama cabinet. there's frustration in the cabinet and on capitol hill. they are putting a republican in the cabinet. a defense secretary. and people feel sees disappointed folks and at a time how he'll define how to be his defense secretary. he's leading the department in a period of entrenchment. does he fight those? does he go along with the white house in trying to trim spending as much as obama would like. it's interesting to see how much frustration there is in the cabinet not just hagel, but also sebelius. one of the reasons when you have these incidents like you do with the health care system -- >> why is general frustration. inside the white house do they think they are incompetent. >> they are not living up to standards with hagel. he's kind of lackluster when they thought he would come in there and be much more forceful. >> why did they think that? if they asked anyone in his own party who was a re
and get away with. obama had the experience where joe decided that his policy on gay marriage was going to change. >> they're genuine in two different ways. >> and we started talking about it more and more seriously if hillary gets out -- >> he just spent five-and-a-half hours with the president of china. i don't know who was doing most of the talking during that meeting, but that's important. five-and-a-half hour meeting. a dinner -- you know this is where joe biden's experience on foreign relations committee, former chairman comes in. he has a personal relationship with this guy, so yes, he does say something like that. by the way, we're always complaining that our politicians are not candid. so you get a guy who is not candid and we complain about his candor. >> we are only talking about the blunder. we're not talking about what might have occurred in the meeting. >> yeah. we did cover it earlier, and we will cover it more with jon huntsman. he is a serious guy, but these gaffs get in the way. >> while we're talking about candor, let's talk about bill clinton and comments he made a f

multiple people. we don't know how many people have lost their coverage. i wout twice. we are talking 11, 12, 14 million people have lost share coverage. bill: it's reported president obama met one time with kathleen sebelius i in the leadup to obamacare. you said when the rollout happens that the first emergency meeting the montana calls at the white house was in mid-october. that would make it two weeks after the first of october. is that true? >> yeah. this was a report this weekend in the "new york times." the president is disengaged. we have seen his disengagement no more rightly shown than in this implementation of obamacare. he says we are finding out how difficult it is to purchase health insurance. has he ever had to purchase health insurance in his life or has it just been handed to him. i run a small business and i know how much agony goes into it of year to get the understand for my people. the president has been disengaged from this process, nobody has been in charge. he's certainly not been in charge. the way he has handled it has been shown in the lousy implementation of t
whose name comes up whenever politicos talk about the budget, or for that matter, about hillary in 2016. it's his beth warren, the one time-time obama nominee set off a huge policy debate among democrats when she went to the senate floor last month and said it's time to stop playing defense on social security. >> if we do nothing, social security will be safe for the next 20 years, and even after that, we'll continue to pay most benefits. with some modest adjustments, we can keep the system solvent for many more years, and we could even increase benefits. >> a little bit after speech, a washington group of self-described centrists attacked warren. warning democrats not to, quote, follow senator warren over a, quote, populist inclusive. that set off a policy firestorm. thirdway struggled to hold on to its allies and honorary co chair in the democratic caucus took warren's side. new york's joe crowley said he strongly disagrees. allison schwartz called it outrageous. in an interview released today with mother jones, senator warren says that thirdway actually is framing the debate over soc
and talked about his wife's chances of running for president, joe biden, and his critique of obama care. >> is mrs. clinton running for president? >> i don't know. and i think, and she believes, that the country should spend at least another year working hard on the problems that we have. we have very serious challenges in american and responsibilities around the world. i think it's a big mistake this constant four-year complain. we need to deal with the business we have before us. >> what kind of president do you think vice president joe biden would make? >> if he runs and he's a nominee, i'll try to help him. i think the world of him. i think -- we've been friends. i first remember working with him when he was the chairman of the judiciary committee to the senate and i was a governor and he asked me to testify in a judicial hearing for him. and i had to file a testimony because i had to go to asia. but i've known him for years and years. and i have a very high opinion of him. i care a great deal about him and i think he's done a good job for the president and for the country. >> is it
always talking about big government and the problems with the obama care rollout. and if we can put it on the screen, here was his answer. and the challenge, i think, we have going forward is not so much my personal management style or particular issues around white house organization. it actually has to do with what i refer to earlier is, we have some of the big agencies, some of which are outdated, some of which are not designed properly. wow! that's the greatest news of the week. he's saying big government is like an old de soto at a time when we want to drive efficient sports cars. the only question i have is, isn't obama care just another one of those? back to you. >> all right, rick, thank you so much. rick santelli in chicago. >>> nobody puts baby in the corner without an -- without an ipad.

we've been talking about there's an enormous push behind getting some kind of a living wage or minimum wage passed. nothing much is happening in washington. president obama was in favor of a $9 minimum wage. now in favor of a $10.10-minute mum wage. not a lot going on in congress. in the states you can see there's a lot more going on. california recently passed a bill to raise the minimum wage from $8 to $10. the highest in the country. district of columbia they are about to pass, i think, legislation that would take it up over $11. doing this in concert with two maryland counties because you want to avoid the factor if you raise the minimum wage in one place, walmart threatened not to go to washington. this is a controversial subject. in the context the bottom fifth of american families have lost 15% of their real income since the year 1999. these are hurting people. >> sam stein, this is a central issue from extending unemployment benefits -- you know, progressives have always been pushing for higher minimum wages, conservatives have been talking about keeping the minimum
not only how obama care will eventually be phased in or whether it will be phased in at all, but what i'm interested in as a market guy is we're talking about 1/6 of the economy. whether you're for it or against it or you believe it's going to work or not going to work, in the end it's 1/6 of the economy, we're the world's leading business channel and it's in our wheelhouse. but one thing that seems to be going on today in it can that is not getting a lot of air time that i find rather fascinating is that the house judiciary committee is holding hearings and they're holding hearings on something rather, i don't know, maybe call it esoteric, maybe call it extreme but let's get to the crux of the matter and i'll get there through an analogy. let's say when we saw at the end of last year that the payroll walked out in january and said basically, listen, i'm going to take a swath of those people whose taxes are going to go up on the payroll tax and i'm going to delay that for a year, would that fly? i don't know that it would fly. we have a constitution and checks and balances. but let's ge
